The event abstract reads: “2021 is set to be the year where the 5G puzzle really starts to come together, as the industry’s focus increasingly shifts towards making 5G use cases a reality. There’s the small matter of a new presidential administration to consider, bringing forth new policies and priorities for the industry to adapt to. And across North America, the Open RAN movement appears to be picking up significant pace; promising much, but also posing challenging technical and commercial questions for operators and vendors alike.  The BIG 5G Event attracts 3,000+ senior representatives from across the 5G ecosystem, including service providers, enterprises, the public sector, vendors, industry associations and academia. Key industry topics will be discussed by our 200+ speaker line-up of 5G leaders, influencers and innovators, whilst valuable relationships will be forged via tailored networking experiences and our AI matchmaking tool.”
